M&J BECKER WINES - MANCHESTER VINEYARD CHARDONNAY 2019
A bold and voluptuous Californian Chardonnay - delightful finely balanced stonefruits and citrus notes sit with the butteriness of old world Chardonnay. Lovely mouthfeel and length of palate.
Made from three clones of Chardonnay, basket pressed and native fermented in neutral barriques for 12 months, this wine captures the vibrancy of this stunning coastal vineyard.
The Manchester Ridge Vineyard sits more than 2,500 feet above sea level but only 3 miles from the coast. This combination of elevation and cool coastal proximity creates incredibly vibrant wines. I spent 2 months living there, making these wines.

MAKER M&J Becker Wines
"I try to create wines that truly reflect the unique character of our chosen vineyards – wines that complement our sustainable vineyard practices with little manipulation in the cellar." – JAMES BECKER
M&J Becker Wines was realised to focus on our passion for the region and its ability to produce dry – grown and environmentally sustainable wine. Recently a new home was established on our holistic philosophy to winemaking which starts with climate, empahasises the importance on the vineyard, as well as wine’s relation to the food we love to grow, cook, and eat.
